Online portal provides educational resources, materials and safety videos to help prepare for passenger (Class D) learner’s permit and driver’s license
New practice exams for learner’s permit are now available; Massachusetts Drivers Manuals can be purchased online
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is announcing the availability of new resources and tools that individuals can use as they begin the critical process of learning how to drive safely and responsibly. A new informational online portal has been created to provide easy access to a variety of educational resources and materials that can be used to help guide first-time drivers, and parents and guardians of Junior Operators, through the detailed step-by-step process of securing a Massachusetts driving credential. The portal can be found at https://www.mass.gov/guides/first-time-driver-start-here.
The RMV is also for the first time offering online practice learner’s permit exams which can be accessed by customers through Mass.Gov/RMV or by logging into their myRMV account. Customers now can also purchase a copy of the Massachusetts Class D (Passenger) Drivers Manual and Commercial Driver’s License Manual online using their myRMV accounts, instead of visiting a Service Center. Ordered manuals will be mailed to customers within seven-10 days of purchase.
“The RMV continues to look for ways in which we can support first-time drivers to ensure that the safety and educational tools they need are accessible and readily available,” said Acting Secretary and CEO of Transportation Jamey Tesler. “Learning to drive is a serious and thoughtful process, and we are pleased to provide a great deal of materials and resources which will help ensure that new drivers are safe, successful and ready for the road.”
“The RMV is pleased to offer these new valuable features and tools that can be used to help individuals learn how to drive safely and responsibly,” said Acting Registrar of Motor Vehicles Colleen Ogilvie. “There are many critical steps included in this sensitive learning process, and the new portal and other resources, including the new learner’s permit practice exams, will help ensure that individuals have access to key materials to support their understanding of the rules of the road, become fully prepared to drive and keep themselves and others safe.”
Highlights of the key features of the new online portal are as follows:
